ARTmonday: 14 Artworks from the MassArt Auction 2015

Like the School of Museum of Fine Arts, the Massachusetts College of Art & Design holds a sale, in this case an auction, to benefit scholarship and academic programs. The 26th Annual MassArt Auction 2015 takes place in Boston this Saturday, April 11th at 6:30. Karen Keane of Skinner will be presiding.

In addition to the many paintings, photos, drawings, sculptures, and multimedia works for auction, there are three special commissions: a portrait sitting with William Wegman (1965) at his home in Chelsea, NYC, a custom evening gown by Jeury Roasario (2003), and a commission of products in your pantry by Rachel Perry Welty.

Here are 14 artworks I love from the MassArt Auction 2015, all open for online bids now on Paddle8 through April 10.

ARTmonday: 20 Autumnal Artworks

I feel like fall just started, but really we’re fast heading into winter, with a few frigid days already behind us. The leaves too, are almost gone. The spectacular array of golds, reds, and oranges continue to amaze, despite having spent every single one of my autumns in a four-season zone. Even driving the kids to and from school is made better by the autumnal artwork outside my windshield.

I remember, though when I took the fall foliage for granted. (Gasp.) Obviously I didn’t think much about the pretty color leaves growing up in Connecticut. Sure, I pressed brilliant red leaves between sheets of waxed paper, and probably made leaf turkeys, too, but beyond that, didn’t give fall foliage a thought. Until college.

At Connecticut College, one of my closest friends, Jessica Biales (I’ve previously blogged about her children’s artwork and stunning gold jewelry), went cuckoo over the changing leaves. She would exclaim and effuse about their beauty, leaving me as baffled as my kids probably are when I point out the amazing leaf colors along the Charles River. She wasn’t from a tropical clime.

Rather, Jessica is a New York City girl through and through, with a deep appreciation for the autumn foliage that wasn’t quite as vibrant out her bedroom window along the East River, or in Central Park. I get it now. I guess good things do come with age.

Today’s roundup features 20 autumnal artworks, from an acrylic of golden birches to a desert landscape photo to Central Park in fall, seen from Columbus Circle. There’s also a  homey kitchen, plus fall harvest still lifes, and an abstract or two in perfect fall hues. I also pulled together a similar collection for the blog on Matouk, which I’ll link to when it goes up. Enjoy not just these autumnal artworks, but the real art of autumn outside your windows.
